Raids

Post » 29 Sep 2015 19:14

We all probably know by now that HoT will be getting raids. During the upcoming beta weekend the first encounter will be open for testing.
Also, with today's patch the following image was datamined:

and these squad features:
.

So I just have a few questions:
1.) are you going to try raiding in HoT;
2.) are you going to beta test the raid this weekend;
3.) what do want your team name to be;
4.) what classes do you have a lot of experience with;

(5.) generall raid theorycrafting on the basis of the raid map :D).

1) I'll give it a go
2) Yes I want to see what i'm letting myself in for
3) Team MYST Noob guild
4) Mesmer, Warrior

Other thing to note is the following I saw go by today: https://twitter.com/All_Caulle/status/6 ... 8282875907

Earlier wing bosses can prob be killed by top tier players in mix of asc/ex. Last boss should be full asc.


Not sure if any beta chars have any ascended stuff? They do

Later in the thread it was stated that Agony Resistance was not required.

Anyway, I was talking about this to Bryce the other day, was thinking of giving it a go over the weekend. No set time/day in mind but I'd like to give a raid a whirl or two

I'll be definitely raiding in the Expension, but won't get the beta/prestart stuff.
Guildname dunno yet.
I consider myself good enough to be useful on Guardian, Mesmer and Warrior. None have ascended stuff though, and unless they drop said items, I won't invest in it until I have a legendary.
It's hard to explain puns to kleptomaniacs because they always take things literally.

While I do appreciate it, there really is no reason to name the team after me ;-)

I'm not pre-purchasing anything from Anet anymore, so count me out of the beta's :P If I do buy HoT, I'll be interested in raiding, using warrior/ele, and maybe mesmer/thief. It depends on the geargrind required, if you need full ascended, I'll have a hard time getting war/ele sorted out, so I'll give up on mesmer/thief entirely :P

Ascended gear is recommended, not a requirement.

Yes i want to do some raids
Ele and nec, maybe guard
I feel like theres going to be a complete floor aoe damage of some sort (maybe like the lava debuff) that will need persistant healing

And with the ascended armour being a must rumour thats going around, the devs just said it would be balanced around it so not a requirement

1.) Sure, why not
2.) Sure, why not
3.) Not Sure, why not. So let's go with the MYST Noob Guild.
4.) Main Thief and Guardian, might try Daredevil this weekend.

Definite yes to both. Will definitely be online today but dunno about sat and sunday as I'm not at home and got rl options and there's only one computer strong enough to handle raids I'd guess ;)
Generally I'm most comfortable with guard, thief and mesmer. If it has to be beta chars I deleted the guard cause dragonhunter :( but have thief(?), mesmer, necro and uh warr I think (but I definitely don't have much experience on warr). Could also recreate another class if needed.

myst noob guild sounds good to me xD

Yey raids!

I'll join in if there is space :) Ranger for now probably...

I can't do Saturday only Friday or Sunday. Did people want to organise something after / instead of the event on Sunday (World boss bash)?

ABORT RAID


Hey everyone, I have an update regarding the availability of raids.

Due to the issues we experienced yesterday with the Enhance Squad UI and with further internal discussion, we have made the very difficult decision to keep raids turned off for the remainder of the beta weekend.

We are continuing to investigate the issues and also looking into options that would allow us to get more testing on these features before we release.

We thank you for your patience and understanding.
